We have reached the point in the development of the internet where, if a thing is not findable on the internet, then it doesn’t exist.  All things have been inventoried and marked so they can be monitored, tracked, monetized, mined for data, and repaired or replaced.   If it fails to appear in search.  If […]

Archibald Armitage-Agnew could probably be described as a geek: big glasses, side parting in his over waxed hair, stripy bow tie and even stripier socks. Now you may think that this sounds quite stylish and debonair, but when you are 13 years old and at a not-so-posh secondary school in a small village, it is […]

I was enchanted by the magic of video games from an incredibly early age. It’s hard to tell what the first game I saw was, but it was likely Space Invaders or a variation on it; there were always machines in local pubs and social clubs. A social club close to my home had a […]

Jane The Virgin’s 100th episode is also its last ever (Picture: Instagram) Jane The Virgin is just about breaking our hearts after it was revealed the show has officially wrapped production forever. The telenovela-inspired series is ending at the end of season five but Gina Rodriguez (who plays Jane) confirmed the show went out in bittersweet style with the show hitting its 100th episode at the same time. As the show officially yelled cut for the last time on filming, the whole cast and crew soon spilled over their sadness and happiness at being part of the project on Instagram. In one photo, Gina is seen clinging onto show creator Jennie Snyder Urman as she broke down in tears – with her on-screen family doing the same behind them. She wrote on the pic: ‘This is my dream maker. Her hair is pink and her brain is big and brilliant. Thank you for making me your Jane’. As well as this, Yael Groblas (who played Petra) shared a photo of her clinging onto Justin Baldoni (Rafael) after one of their final moments together, clearly crying as well. Yael Groblas and Justin Baldoni had an emotional goodbye (Picture: Instagram) Gina was seen in tears as she hugged the cast and crew of the show goodbye (Picture: Instagram) Sending her goodbyes, she wrote to him: ‘This is hard. I love you so much [Justin Baldoni]. Couldn’t wish for a kinder person by my side for 5 years. You’re wonderful in every way.’ Cementing the kind of bonkers tale that Jane The Virgin fans love so much, Justin then responded, and wrote: ‘What an honor it’s been to play your TV baby-daddy-ex husband for these five years. I absolutely adore you. ‘Your talent never ceases to amaze me and I can’t wait to see all the incredible things you do next. You are an untapped resource of comedy brilliance- there is nothing you can’t do. I love you friend.’ ‘I have no words. I’m still crying. I will not say goodbye, you’re family,’ she replied back to him. (You guys. Seriously. Our hearts can’t handle this right now.) The telenovela series has had audeinces hooked for five years (Picture: Instagram) Justin was clearly on a roll with one-on-one honours, and also made one last attempt to get Rogelio to team Rafael with a snap with actor, Jaime Camill. ‘It’s been a supreme joy and a pleasure working with and learning from this brilliant man for five years,’ Justin wrote about the former telenovela star. ‘It’s hard enough to make it/ become a massive star in your home country, but its an entirely different/difficult challenge to crossover and become a star in America as well. ‘Very few people could have done what he did with the beloved Rogelio. I know amazing things are coming for [Jaime Camil] and it couldn’t be happening to a nicer man. I hope our paths will cross again soon my brother. I adore you and these five years have been so much fun… even if i’m annoyed by the fact that you don’t age and that you’ve always been #teammichael’ It worked too, with Jaime declaring himself to finally be #TeamJafael with a response on the picture together, adding: ‘Thank you my beautiful brother, your words made my heart happy 🙏🏼😍 I adore you and it was a privilege to share this amazing journey with you 🥰’ Gina sent special love to her on-screen son as she bid farewell to the series (Picture: Instagram) Luisa and Sin Rostro reunited?? (Picture: Instagram) Yara Martinez, who played the troubled Luisa, teased a reunion with the evil Sin Rostro as she posted with actress Bridget Regan backstage. She later wrote: ‘Just wrapped [Jane The Virgin] forever. Heart is bursting with light, love and… denial.’ In the meantime, we now know that we have 14 episodes to go before the show ends for good. And with their ability to keep us on their toes with their plot lines that run faster than the speed of light – you just know it’s going to be a rollercoaster. [metro-tag-post-strip] Though above all we need to know one thing – Is Jane going to finally decide on Michael, or Rafael?! (We’d also quite like to know who’s narrating this story.) Between Jane The Virgin, Gotham, and The Big Bang Theory all ending within weeks of each other, we’re pretty sure we’re running out of tears to cry – or shows to watch. Jane The Virgin airs Wednesdays on the CW and streams on Netflix the next day.

[metro-video id=”1909966″] Game of Thrones season eight, episode three photos have been released ahead of Sunday and there’s something eerie going on with Sansa Stark. In a photo still from the episode, which is expected to feature the biggest battle in the show’s history, Sansa (played by Sophie Turner) is seen sitting in what looks like the crypts beneath Winterfell. The crypts are where those who can’t fight in the battle will be waiting while the violence goes on, although, they may not be safe down there either. Sansa looks like she’s been crying and the outline of a face obscured by walls and darkness can just about be made out in the background. So who could it be? There’s a creepy face behind Sansa (Picture: HBO) We’re seriously freaked out (Picture: HBO) One pretty prominent fan theory doing the rounds is that Littlefinger aka Petyr Baelish (Aidan Gillen) isn’t actually dead and could be making his sinister return. Or, a widely held belief is that the Night King (Vladimir Furdik) will raise the dead from the crypts, leaving Sansa and the others to come face to face with their dead ancestors, including her parents Ned (Sean Bean) and Catelyn (Michelle Fairley). Other more plausible options suggest the may be someone non-threatening like Jon (Kit Harington) or Arya (Maisie Williams) but why would they lurk like that? The series creators know full well just how dedicated Game of Thrones fans are so even a subtle detail like this will not go unnoticed. Five other photos released tease the highly anticipated and possibly devastating instalment. Jaime and Brienne brace for action (Picture: HBO) One shows Brienne of Tarth (Gwendoline Christie) and Jaime Lannister (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau) leading the infantry preparing to battle. Another features Jon in a blizzard looking overwhelmed with the glow of a fire behind him. Jon is stressed and so are we (Picture: HBO) Nice view, shame about the impending wight invasion (Picture: HBO) The next picture shows Jon and Daenerys Targaryen (Emilia Clarke) standing together on a hill overlooking Winterfell and their combined forces lined up in formation. We’re dying to know what happens (Picture: HBO) Hopefully Varys and Tyrion are ok in the crypts which are definitely safe (Picture: HBO) [metro-tag-post-strip] Sansa features a second time but this time on the battlements where she looks at Arya with a mix of shock and fear on her face. Lastly, Varys (Conleth Hill) and Tryion look stoic in the crypts, but there appears to be no background lurkers in this shot. Game of Thrones season 8, episode 3 will air on Sunday and Monday on Sky Atlantic and NOW TV.
